What’s Included in Part 141 Commercial Pilot Training?

By Blue Line Aviation on Jan 14, 2022 11:41:00 AM

To start your career as a paid commercial pilot, you’ll first need to receive a commercial pilot certificate. This certificate will allow you to accept jobs as a cargo pilot, airline pilot, charter pilot, flight instructor, and numerous other jobs in aviation. The sky is really the limit.

Part 141 training is designed for students seeking a career in aviation. The training involves completing a great deal of coursework, stage checks, written tests, and passing a final check ride. 

By choosing an accredited Part 141 flight school, you’re selecting a school with a structured program, certified by the FAA. 

Blue Line Aviation is a fully accredited Part 141 flight school ready to help a private pilot move up to a commercial pilot license in a minimum of 120 hours. At Blue Line, you’ll receive high-quality instruction, and the guidance needed to not just pass the test, but to launch an exciting career as a pilot.

Let's take a closer look at what's included in Part 141 training at Blue Line Aviation.

Included with Part 141 Commercial Pilot Training Program:


All required ground and flight instruction

Our Part 141-approved course will allow a private pilot to become a commercial pilot in as little as 120 hrs. All required ground and flight instruction is included.

Up to 24 hours of Diamond Simulator time

For simulator training, our Diamond Simulator provides advanced, realistic training and feedback that make it easier for our students to transition from the classroom to a cockpit. 

The simulator accurately simulates adverse conditions and allows for VFR and IFR training with its expansive visual displays. It features an actual DA40 hull and cockpit that you sit in during your training. As a Blue Line Part 141 commercial pilot student, you’ll receive up to 24 hours of Diamond Simulator time.

Up to 110 hours of dual instruction in Technically Advanced Aircraft

This is the phase of flight training where you’ll be paired with an appropriately licensed and rated Blue Line flight instructor. You’ll have up to 110 hours of flight time with an instructor in a dual-control aircraft.

Use of aircraft for the checkride (up to 2 hours)

The commercial pilot checkride involves an oral exam, followed by the flight portion. Our Part 141 training includes up to two hours of aircraft time for the checkride.

Student Prerequisites

Part 141 schools must meet FAA standards, and there are also qualifications that students must meet to enroll.

These prerequisites include:

  • The ability to fly to private pilot standards as defined by the FAA.
  • A current, valid second class or better Airman Medical Certification.
  • The ability to meet course goals and stick to a clear timetable. The standard is 5.5 months to graduate our entire career pilot program.
